Obituary for George D Whitten

Print
George Dix Whitten, 94, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather died September 29th after a brief illness at St Andrews Village in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

George was born October 16, 1923 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
He was the middle child of Robinson and Marion Whitten. He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters; Harriet Mcgillvray, Nancy Barton, Charles Whitten, and Bradford Whitten.

Married to wife, Naomi (Kurz) for the past fourteen years he was also predeceased by his wives; Audrey (Bancker) and Natalie (Fletcher).

George leaves behind his children and their spouses; G Robinson, Robin (Fredricks), Amy Whitten, Dennis Patrick Ryan, Nicole (Kulacz) and Charles Dix Whitten. Also left behind are grandchildren; Dennison Barnes, Kristin(Hahn), Natalie Rose, and Stella Bright Whitten. He was also lucky enough to have loved great grandson; Fletcher George and great granddaughter Maisie Lynne Whitten.

George proudly served his country in World War II. He was a decorated combat engineer in Company A, 166th Engineers C Battalion of General Patton’s Third Army during the Battle of the Bulge. On January 5, 1945 he led a company that erected a bridge over the Our River in Luxembourg that helped save many Canadian troops trapped in enemy fire.

After the war George and Natalie settled in Winchester, Mass where he, along with his two brothers, started a construction and development company that built thousands of homes and millions of square feet of industrial space.

He loved spending time playing golf, curling, cruising the coast, and his summers on Juniper Point. Most of all, he reveled in the company of others. He is famous for the summertime lobster bakes and weddings he hosted in his field.

A very active community member, George was always improving infrastructure for the benefit of all those around. Whether it was constructing piers and docks, rebuilding community houses, building common sewer systems, repairing seawalls, or assisting those most in need he will always be remembered as the one who led from the front. He was a doer of the highest order. In addition to his time and talent, George was a very generous man with his treasure. Many of his largest financial gifts were donated anonymously.

A memorial service will be held at the McKown and Juniper Point Community House in West Boothbay Harbor, Maine on Tuesday October 9th at Noon. Reception to immediately follow.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Juniper Point Village Improvement Society, P.O Box 498, West Boothbay Harbor, Maine 04575 or Camp Knickerbocker YMCA, 261 Townsend Avenue, Boothbay Harbor, Maine. 04538
